The featured brewer for the 2012 Ashley's Belgian Beer Festival is Brouwerij Van Eecke of Watou, Belgium. Van Eecke is a family owned brewery that traces it origins back to 1629.  We previously blogged about our visit with the brewery. We met with the owners & brewmasters Hendrik and Philip Leroy - the seventh generation of the brewery's current owners.

As some background on their Kapittel abbey beers we shot a video interview with Pete Larson of Global Importers. We hope you enjoy it. Note - we are an authority on beer, not video so no critiques on production quality please. Although now that I think about it we should have done multiple takes so as to drink more of their great beer.
